President of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA), Kudjoe Fianoo, does not agree with calls to slash players salaries due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The ex-Ashantigold CEO believes the salaries players take in the local league is meagre to even think of slashing it.
“In calling for slashing of players salaries in our diaspora, we are all aware of the amount paid players, some of which are even owed for months,” said Kudjoe Fianoo on Kumasi FM.
“Will club executives even have the courage to say this to their players in this situation?,” he quizzed.
“I have held talks with the GFA president to know the next line of action in this situation. The welfare of the players is very important and we will find a possible solution to it,” he added.
Kudjoe Fianoo believes it is too early to call for the cancellation of the 2019/20 season amidst the growing cases of the COVID-19.
“It is too early to call for the termination of the league. Our situation is different from other countries calling for the cancellation of their league season due to Covid-19,” he asserted.
“Ours is very critical considering how the momentum had build in bringing the love back after the Anas exposè. This is not the time to talk about terminating it,we must consult all stakeholders which is ongoing.” – Ghanasoccernet
